Shopkeeper selling ‘Pailwan’ clip for Rs 10 arrested

Police have made another arrest over the piracy of Kannada film 'Pailwan'. A 32-year-old mobile phone store owner has been apprehended for selling a pirated clip of the movie for as little as Rs 10. 

Praveen, a resident of Netaji Nagar, was arrested by the KP Agrahara police following a complaint filed by the film's producer, Swapna Krishna. 

Police said Praveen had downloaded the video from a website and was selling it to customers by copy-pasting it in their pen drives for Rs 10. "This is a clear violation of the Copyright Act," a police officer said. 

Just last week, the cybercrime Police of the Central Crime Branch had arrested a 19-year-old student from Nelamangala for uploading and sharing the link of 'Pailwan' on Facebook.
